about darylle kelly

Darylle Kelly is renowned as one of Australia's foremost jewellery designers specialising in Australian and Tahitian South Sea pearls, gemstones and diamonds. A qualified Gemmologist (FGAA) and member of the Gold and Silversmith's Guild of Australia, Darylle leads a small team of jewellery assistants in her Melbourne design studio.

Since creating her first handmade ring in 1973, Darylle has continued to evolve and develop her technique. Her sculptural style allows Darylle to employ unusual Baroque shaped pearls and mabés in her designs.

Fantastic lustre, beautiful rich colours and the unique allure of each pearl and gemstone are features highlighted by her original jewellery settings.

"I am inspired by the gemstones and pearls I use to create my work. I consider myself an artist, who makes jewellery."

Darylle's work may be viewed and purchased from Galleries situated in premier tourist destinations throughout Australia. Darylle welcomes commissioned pieces and you may alternatively visit her at her studios in central Melbourne.

We hope you enjoy Darylle Kelly's jewellery designs!
